Lalov and Vachev Ltd has been founded more than 15 years ago in the City of Vratsa, Bulgaria and it is now one of the biggest meat processing companies in the country. It uses own manufacturing equipment, operates through sales representatives and ex-van seller all over the country, and distributes goods through warehouses facilities located in Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Veliko Tarnovo, and others. With its rich experience and traditions, company’s products are known to the Bulgarian customers with the name “Maystor Tsvetko”.
During the years, the company became one of the fastest developing organizations working in Food and Beverages industry in Bulgaria. This is mainly connected to the specificities and complexities of the business processes in its functional business units – e.g. manufacturing, warehouse, supply chain, sales and others. The company has also invested in different software solutions. However, after several years in service these applications could no longer meet the new operations requirements.
The management of Lalov and Vachev Ltd came to the conclusion they need a single, integrated software solution. In order to meet the challenges connected to the production planning, warehouse management, sales activities, lack of integration among the different software applications in use, as well as the related reporting insufficiencies, in the middle of 2010 the company started to investigate the ERP market in Bulgaria.
„We realized that if we want our company to keep its successful development, to deploy its full potential, and to retain the high production quality, we need a single, integrated business management solution”, says Yordan Vachev, Manager of Lalov and Vachev Ltd.
The company’s management decided Microsoft Dynamics NAV to be that solution and chose Intelligent Systems as ERP implementation partner. The integrated business management system was deployed by the biggest Microsoft ERP partner in Bulgaria for few months only and today Lalov and Vachev Ltd enjoys effective business processes connected to production, supply chain, warehouse, sales, finances, accounting, etc. The company integrated also NAVfood. This is a specialized vertical solution created to meet the requirements of the companies from Food and Beverages industry. It facilitates raw materials management, lot tracking, direct and indirect costs, planning and production control, meat explosion orders, reports and analyses, and many more.
Intelligent Systems Bulgaria integrated also a mobile front-end to Microsoft Dynamics NAV that optimizes the work of warehouse and mobile employees. This specialized ERP add-on is called NAVmobile and assures reliable mobile access to the database and gives the possibility orders processing, sales and deliveries to be executed by the mobile employees of Lalov and Vachev in real time.
Mr. Vachev added: “Thanks to the integration of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, we now enjoy a number of improvements. Optimized inter-departmental information flow, enhanced employees’ productivity, and presence of timely and improved reporting are the basis for successful decision-making processes.”
„The dynamic development of Lalov and Vachev Ltd and its specific needs required fast, professional actions during the whole implementation process. We are pleased to share that the whole management team, headed by Mr Vachev, trusted us. Thanks to Microsoft Dynamics NAV and our rich experience and expertise we justified all the expectations”, said Boyan Martinov, Sales Manager at Intelligent Systems Bulgaria.
